Loadrunner controller crashing at start with "Failed to create empty document."

Jump to solution
Hi,

I'm evaluating the trial version of Loadrunner 9.5 (patched to 9.52) but can't seem to create a load scenario.

I've created a simple RDP script using the Virtual user generater, but when i try to create a new scenario in Loadrunner Controller, it crashes after I select that script click OK.

An error message saying "Failed to create empty document." appears, then another msg box appears saying it's crashed and needs to restart.

I'm running LoadRunner in a virtual PC with Win XP SP3. No anti viruses running in the VM.

Is there a patch that i'm missing ?

Thanks

Either of below two things should help you resolve the issue:

Change this:
1. Close LoadRunner Controller and go to Windows Control Panel and open â Date and Timeâ
2. Go to the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time window.
3. Unselect the check box "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time" and click Ok.
4. Re-Open LoadRunner Controller.

Or
install the below patch

Let me know, how it goes??

Wow, that was really obscure, would never have thought about looking at daylight saving settings.

Is there any other way I can obtain that patch ? My current account does not have a SAID no., which prevents me from downloading that file.

Thanks.

You will require SAID to download patch or to get access to HP support documents.

Yes, your advice to uncheck "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time" worked.

Thanks !
